W. Michigan, Cooley To Sign Affiliation Agreement

Posted: Updated:

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Thomas M. Cooley Law School and Western Michigan University plan to formally sign an affiliation agreement between the two schools.

The Tuesday event at Western Michigan's campus in Kalamazoo is expected to include officials and graduates of both schools. Under the agreement, the private, Lansing-based law school is to be called the Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School.

Trustees at Western Michigan University in July approved the agreement. The schools say they've had a long, collaborative relationship and the move will add Western Michigan to the list of public universities with accredited law schools.

The agreement followed several years of informal talks.

Founded in 1972, Cooley Law School has Michigan campuses in Lansing, Auburn Hills, Grand Rapids and Ann Arbor, as well as one in Tampa Bay, Fla.
